Football tips ahead of the World Cup warm up match between France and Paraguay on Sunday in this weekend international friendly match.
The World Cup warm up friendlies have started and we turn our attention to France vs. Paraguay this Sunday with Didier Deschamps looking to cement his team for the finals. Switzerland, Ecuador and Honduras are the other teams in Group E (read our World Cup Group E betting tips here) and France are expected to at least qualify from the group.
Paraguay then represents not so much of a test of potential World Cup style opposition but a chance to tweak the team and hopefully score some goals.

France has a midfield to match anybody in the world with Franck Ribery, Paul Pogba and Yohan Cabaye all top class midfielders. Didier Deshamps could even afford to leave Manchester City’s Samir Nasri out of the squad completely such is the talent at his disposal. Expect the midfield to chip in with some goals, especially against a team like Paraguay. Pogba is available at 10/1 with Coral to score first while Ribery is 5/1 with William Hill.
It is in the goal department up front where France appear to be lacking, although Karim Benzema, Olivier Giroud and Loic Remy are talented, they are hardly prolific although they all have spells. At least one of them will need to hit the ground running if they are to do well in the World Cup this summer. This game then is a test for the forward line that will be pushing to score as many as they can. Both Remy and Giroud have odds at 6/1 to score 2 or more goals in the match with Betfred while Benzema is odds of 7/2 with Betfred to net twice or more.
It is goals where the best value for our football betting tips for France v Paraguay are coming from with an anytime double looking decent. Coral have Benzema and Ribery at 3/1 to score any time while a Pogba and Remy double can be got at 9/2.
It seems unfair not to have spoken about Paraguay who can boast former Manchester City striker Roque Santa Cruz and Benfica’s Oscar Cardozo in their ranks, so they do have goals in their team but expect a comfortable win for France who are 12/1 for 3-1 victory with Bet Victor and that’s our correct score football tip.
France will expect sterner tests ahead of them when the World Cup starts, Switzerland being the notable team of their group but they should not be troubled by Paraguay and we are predicting an easy France win on Sunday.
